    What ^ he said.

    You also need 1/3 common sense. If you lack that, refer back to this forum.

    I'd get a HU with an aux port if I were you, beats the hell out of those iPod radio transmitters as far as sound quality, and flipping through a CD book, as far as its the year 2011 goes.

    On Friday I installed my Pioneer DEH-6300UB from Crutchfield. Super easy! Crutchfield's instructions were great when it came to the wiring. I soldered all my wiring & installed the steering controller also. From start to finish it took me 6 hours. Mostly because this was my first stereo install & I was taking my time. Took an hour trouble shooting the steering controll adapter, to realize I connected a wrong wire. Should have been Green/Orange & I hooked Orange/Green up. Easy fix & everything works great! Much louder than the stock stereo.:)

    Like Bradley said if you have any sense it is relativley easy. At one point I thought I was over my head. But I pushed forward & completed it. I am very pleased with my work.

    Yeah the one I bought plays well with ipod & iphone. Even though I have neither. The best thing is the usb port where you can play music off a flash drive.
